LBC Catch Pelican Casino Using Fake Games

by Glenn Baird - October 23, 2019

With a raft of fraudulent casino games already brought to light, LBC are at it again. This time, outing Pelican Casino for their alleged use of pirated games.

LBC claim that Pelican Casio have been filling their website with fake slots games, ripping off no less than NetEnt, Microgaming, Amatic, Playtech, EGT, QuickSpin, Wazdan, Merkur Gaming, Novomatic, IGT, Apollo and Aristocrat.

Pelican Casino operate in Curaçao and state on their site that they are licenced by Cyberluck (1668/JAZ). However, what they do not provide is a validation seal from Curaçao Internet Gaming Association, suggesting that there is a good chance that they are in fact operating without a licence.

LBC state that a huge number of the games offered at Pelican Casino are fake and that many of them are very difficult to distinguish from the original. One major clue that LBC claim alerted them to the alleged misgivings is the fact that they spotted games by Novomatic and Aristocrat software, two software developers that are not available in the Curacao region.

LBC also go on to question aspects of the casino’s terms and conditions that they deem to be unscrupulous.
